Title: Towards a compact cold atom frequency standard based on coherent populatoin trapping
Published: June 02, 2010
Abstract: We describe in this paper the main features of a cold atom CPT based frequency standard. We explain our particular CPT configuration and our experimental setup. as well as present simulations of the expected performance (stability and major systematics)
